Dunkin' Donuts franchisees and vendors in the Northeast have donated over $7 million to fund the work of "Rising Stars" physicians at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) since the program's inception in 1998. Selected annually by DFCI, "Rising Stars" are doctors leading breakthrough cancer research as yet not backed by federal funding.

"This event is successful every year through the generosity of our franchisees, vendors, Dunkin' Brands and DCP employees," said David Liguori, Tournament Chairman and COO of Dunkin' Donuts National DCP. "Even in a challenging economy these incredible and passionate people come through for the Jimmy Fund. And because the tragedy of cancer is pervasive, we want to contribute in any way that we can to help Dana Farber Cancer Institute battle this insidious disease."

Nancy Rowe, director of the Jimmy Fund Golf Program adds, "The commitment by Dunkin' Donuts is extraordinary and is vitally important to the work of Dana Farber. We are so grateful for their continued devotion to the Jimmy Fund and the priority they give it. It serves as a vivid example of selfless commitment at its best."

More than 200 golfers participated in the tournament and approximately 300 people attended the din
